, something they agreed to rather effortlessly 25 times under george w. bush and ronald reagan. this would be the decision that would be only as disastrous as it is profoundly unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually poised for a good year if only congress can get out of the way. i kind of paraphrased that last part. now that we know we're not going to be minting a trillion dollar coin, we need something different. a bill that would repeal the debt ceiling altogether. it is an idea supported publicly by alan greenspan and times man of the year last year, ben bernanke. it is an idea that could prevent lawmakers from lurching our country from one crisis to the next just to ring out some short-term gain until another republican sits in the oval office. that's why it's probably an idea that this congress has no chance of making law. but joining me now is one of the sponsors of the bill to repeal the debt ceiling altogether, democratic congressman from vermont and a member of the committee on house oversight and government reform, represe

history. from thomas jefferson's coining of the term "belittle" to george w. bush's creative terminology. that's the subject of a new book by paul dickson. and on our science page, see how hip hop and the pillsbury doughboy helped a group of fifth graders learn math. how do we work on making social security solvent? economist jared bernstein offers a menu of choices on making sense. all that and more is on our website newshour.pbs.org. ray? >> suarez: and that's the "newshour" for tonight. on thursday, we'll update the kidnapping of americans and other foreigners in algeria. i'm ray suarez. >> brown: and i'm jeffrey brown. we'll see you online and again here tomorrow evening. thank you and good night. >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: ♪ ♪ moving our economy for 160 years. bnsf, the engine that connects us. >> support also comes from carnegie corporation of new york, a foundation created to do what andrew carnegie called "real and permanent good." celebrating 100 years of philanthropy at carnegie.org. >> and with the ongoing support of these institutions and
numbers, about the same that george w. bush had in the second term and i believe five points lower than what bill clinton experienced but a lot of members of congress back there today and it is groundhog day, whatever you want to call it all over again. >> yes. >> because if the 112th was the most polarizing, what do we expect out of the 113th? >> we expect it more. so one of obama's goals, we'll see if he repeats it in the inaugural address, to change the tone of washington. he couldn't do it in term one. we go in to the new congress now with exactly -- with the dynamic that you have just described tamron. >> yeah. >> the dynamic -- i apologize for interrupting, but the reaction to this president. this week we saw a senator refer to him as king obama and allegations of tyranny and impeachment and beyond ideological differences. it taps in to what i think scares some people who are in the middle who may be moderate republicans or maybe not far to the left of the most progressive. somewhere in the middle and they become afraid and worried when they hear this kind of language coming from
this because long term the republican party has to fix this at the national level. >> george w. bush tried to address this head on. what do you think about the controversy now? >> well, frankly, i think that you can look at both parties and find things you don't like. in the republican party it's extremely small sliver. i suspect there's people in the democratic party that have some very old views. i'm disappointed that secretary powell would only look in one direction and that's the republicans. i think there's a hostility in much of the liberal wings of the political party towards organized religion. i think it's intolerance of the left twashd people of good faith on the right and that worries me. i wish colin powell had talked about that as well. i wish colin powell had talked about the implications of chunk hagel talking about the jewish lobby that intimidates people. he said, make the jews pay. colin powell could have talked about that and whether that was a dark strain or is his focus only on when republicans act wrong? chuck hagel did, too, in these circumstances. it's a topic worth
with fellow texan george w. bush but it could have meant that he didn't have to end up in the oprah chair at this point. and that's sat because a lot of people in my family who would have been willing to love lance armstrong no matter what because of the work he did on cancer, it was very painful to see last night, not because he cheated, but because he didn't quite get the equation of what he meant to people. and if he did, it's not only that he wouldn't have acted this way in the last several years, he would never have responded to the questions like he did last night. >> we're going to be watching part two on this interview with lance armstrong. now that he's come clean, could he face criminal charges for coming clean? we're going to take a look at what could be next for lance armstrong. >>> and after last night's interview, live strong gave the following statement. we at the live strong foundation are disappoint by the news that lance armstrong misled people during and after his cycling career, even us. in the wake of our disappointment, we also express our gratitude to lance as a sur
